SR05 is the most affordable digital pyranometer meeting ISO 9060 second class requirements. It measures solar radiation received by a plane surface, in W/m2, from a 180 o field of view angle. SR05 is ideal for general solar radiation measurements in (agro-)meteorological networks and PV monitoring. The pyranometer is easy to mount and install, in particular with SR05's ball levelling mechanism. Various outputs are available, both digital and analogue, for ease of integration.
• Easy mounting and levelling
• Pricing: second class pyranometers finally affordable for large networks
Design and output
SR05 pyranometer employs a thermopile sensor with black coated surface, one dome and an anodised aluminium body with visible bubble level. SR05 has a variety of industry standard outputs, both digital and analogue:
• SR05-DA2: digital sensor with Modbus over TTL and analogue 4–20 mA output
Mounting and levelling
Optionally SR05 has a unique ball levelling mechanism and tube mount for easy mounting and levelling on a (non-)horizontal surface or tube. Click the Gallery tab to view some examples.
• (agro-)meteorological networks
• PV power plant monitoring
For communication between a PC and SR05, the Hukseflux Sensor Manager software is downloadable. It allows the user to plot and export data, and change the SR05 Modbus address and its communication settings.
